The Magic School Bus was a popular educational show in the 1990s. Its purpose was to break down harder scientific topics like astronomy, biology, chemistry and other topics into simple stories that kids can understand. The show follows Ms. Frizzle, a wacky teacher with a bus that can travel anywhere from outer space to inside the human body. Ms. Frizzle and her bus make education come alive for her dynamic class of third graders.
